Don’t tase me, bro!
~ Historical Catchphrase [13014]

Andrew Meyer is probably a name you don't know, but his words are. He was the student who caused a disturbance when Sen. John Kerry was speaking at the University of Florida. As the police tried to carry him off he kept resisting arrest. Finally one of the officers pulled a Taser to which Meyer shouted "Don't tase me, bro!"

The incident went viral on YouTube and the mainstream media. Every pundit and comedian in the country was repeating the words for weeks and it still pops up in conversation on a regular basis.
